    The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb has officially entered its second centenary. The 101st running of the race has just concluded and it was a proper send-off to the next 100 years. The weather was cooperative for once and was delightful the entirety of race day. Over the years poor weather conditions typically ruin runs.…

    I was watching a reply of the Red Bull Erzberg Rodeo the other day, and I’m blown away at the skill of the riders. This is a race that takes place in the Erzberg Mine in Austria. It’s an iron ore mine that cranks out over 2 million tonnes of ore every year. And once…

    Like humans, vehicles also tend to “grow up” over their lifespan, getting larger and heavier, but usually also more rich with features. The Honda HR-V is a great example, when it arrived on our shores in 2016 it was based on the diminutive subcompact Honda Fit. Now, after eight Fit-based model years, it’s back. However,…

    The average transaction price on a new vehicle is, quite frankly, an insane number. It’s over $48,000 at the moment. In fact, it’s been over $40,000 for more than three years now. Cars are only getting more expensive. So when an affordable new car pops up, it almost feels like an automaker is playing a…

    “MINIs aren’t so mini anymore” goes the trope we’ve all heard time and time again. As much as we don’t want it to be right, the trope isn’t totally wrong. MINI’s 2023 Clubman isn’t a huge car by any means at only 168.3 inches long, yet considering that the 2000’s reincarnated R53 Cooper was only…

    We’re spoiled for choice these days when it comes to truly good CUVs. Kia (and Hyundai) have made massive strides in this space as of late, and vehicles like the 2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid SX-Prestige AWD are an example of just how far they’ve come. This is a truly solid crossover with good hybrid powertrain…

    Subaru has always crafted cars well-suited to the multi-layered lifestyles and climates of places like the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, and New England. These cars excel there because of the standard AWD setup, the confident driving dynamics, and the affordable price tags relative to the competition. The 2024 Subaru Impreza RS continues on in this vein…

    “The sedan is dead!” they chant, “the CUV has taken over wholly and completely!” That might be reflected in sales figures, but there’s still plenty cars (real cars!) out there worth our attention. Even while BMW is seemingly striving to fill every possible niche in the CUV/SUV field, a week with the 2023 M340i showed…

    The electric future is here, and…it’s a mixed bag if I’m honest. I’ve driven all kinds of EVs, more than I can even self-promotingly link here, and unfortunately one of my least favorite was the Toyota B-zed-Four-X-ray. The bZ4X has a terrible name that is hard to remember, and I found the drive uninspiring, the…
